Publishers Weekly foresees a success for Vampire Academy!

10

Last year was a chilly one for paranormal YA movies, with disappointing box office returns for Beautiful Creatures and Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Vampires have certainly had their time in the sun, so to speak, but could Vampire Academy bring bloodsuckers back into the limelight?

L’année dernière a accueilli frileusement les adaptations YA, avec des résultats décevants au box-office pour Sublimes Créatures ou La cité des ténèbres. Les vampires ont certainement eu déjà eu leur place au soleil, en quelque sorte, mais Vampire Academy pourrait-il ramener les suceurs de sang sur le devant de la scène?

Razorbill president and publisher Ben Schrank, who edits the Vampire Academy series, also has high hopes. Commenting on what he called a “rather dark movie landscape,” Schrank told PW, “Vampire Academy promises to be a welcome respite for fans and newcomers. The Waters brothers stayed true to Richelle Mead’s story while also bringing their own signature teen feel. The buzz has been huge and we think this will be the surprise hit of the season.”

Le président de Razorbill et éditeur Ben Schrank, qui a publié la série Vampire Academy, fonde de grands espoirs. Parlant de ce qu’il appelle “un paysage plutôt sombre”, il a expliqué: “Vampire Academy promet un repos bienvenu aux fans et aux nouveaux-venus. Les frères Waters sont restés fidèles à l’histoire de Richelle Mead tout en amenant leur propre touche ado. Le buzz est déjà grand et on pense que ce film créera la surprise cette saison.”

Perhaps buoyed by awareness of the forthcoming movie, the Facebook page for the Vampire Academy series hit a milestone recently: one million followers. Penguin reported that book sales for the final five weeks in 2013 rose 51% over the previous five weeks. In mid-February, fans will learn whether these positive signs point to a return to the land of the living for paranormal YA on the big screen.

Peut-être porté par le prochain film, la page Facebook de la série a atteint un point important récemment: un million de likes. Penguin a expliqué que les ventes de livres au cours des 5 dernières semaines de 2013 avaient augmenté de 51% comparé aux 5 semaines d’avant. A la mi-février, les fans sauront si ces signes encourageants signeront le retour du paranormal YA sur grand écran.
